Cake balls!

If you don't know what Cake Balls are you can find out more about them at this great blog called Bakerella. It's a clever concept...bake a cake, crumble it up, add a container of frosting, roll into balls, dip in chocolate and then any type of edible sprinkle you like.Easy enough? Right? These Cake Balls were for a bridal shower I was helping with and I was making Cake Balls to resemble the bride and groom. The brides turned out great...using a white cake and white frosting, dipped in white almond bark then sprinkled with white iridescent sugar sprinkles. Quite bridal if I may say so myself.

And then came the grooms....oh dear. They just didn't dip and come out correctly.

They came out HORRID!!! After several attempts and it being after midnight, I went to bed with thought of whipping up some cupcakes first thing the next morning...

I was so disappointed! I tossed and turned all night and gave thought to just how to decorate the cupcakes to look like little brides and grooms.

But sometime during this fitful night I came up with the idea of using a paint brush to apply the chocolate turning these little dudes into....

LITTLE ELVIS' or WEREWOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Then the bow ties and buttons were added and they gradually began to transform into handsome little grooms.

Pairing them up with the brides...

and placing them on a nice serving dish...

brought the whole marital Cake Ball package together.
Stay tune for more ideas that were used at this shower...

See...there's the difference in you and me!
First of all, cake mix, can o'frosting...tah-dah!
Second....if I had've done this, y'all would have called 911!
Then...when the groom's messed up - I would have just ATE them. have to Martha Stewart it!
That's why I love you like I do!
